Coquelicot – Montmartre, Paris
October 11, 2016
Montmartre is probably one of my favorite places to explore in Paris. It’s easy to see why my Great-grandmother spent so much time here hanging with all the artists and going to the Moulin Rouge. From all that I’ve heard, she sounds like quite the wild child. Probably why they married her off so young…
I’m kinda obsessed with Anthony Bourdain, nothing in a creepy stalker sort of way, more of I want to takeover his TV show. Obviously, I did my research before this trip to Paris and wrote down every damn place Mr. Bourdain recommended, like Coquelicot.
Coquelicot (poppy in French) is a wonderful breakfast spot in the heart of Montmartre. Fresh baked breads, pastries, and soft-boiled eggs. A local hot spot where the servers are friendly and speak English, which is a plus!
Our first time at this cafe we each ordered:
Le earre d’oeuf bio et eiboulette: soft boiled egg with green salad.
Yes, that is a soft boiled egg. Yes, it’s in the shape of a cube. Don’t let this throw you, it’s very good.
The meal also comes with bread.
I could eat French bread everyday 24/7.
Of course, we ordered café au lait, cause the French know their un café!
Second time there my mom and grandmama ordered the same thing. I, however, ordered Le Tartin de Saumon.
Looks beautiful right? I’m gonna be honest, it was kinda weird. I’m so used to lox being served on a bagel with cream cheese. I’m such a Jew. The French eat theirs differently. Bread, butter, orange slices, and lox. It’s good but weird.
I highly, highly recommend Coquelicot for breakfast or brunch! Thanks, Anthony Bourdain, great pick!
